Can't see the exact spot I think it is on any of the street views, but I think I've got it narrowed down to one of two spots with one being much more likely than the other.

You VA folks are on notice to grab this thing before tomorrow morning.

Im trying to help them out here . If I would have took a a pic from the front of the bike it would have been super easy , you would be able to see the DAM ROAD which I think is the shortest single digit numbered road in Va. OK short of giving gps cords yall should find it .


There is a gate to the parking area that they shut at night , I think its to keep the ghost out from the Indian graveyard across the street .

That should help you too .

who ever grabs it
If the ranger forgot to open the gate in the morning Ill take a pic from in front of it or at the next spot if its safer for you.

Funny thing is most of the pics that have been took in southern va I knew where they were the second I saw the pic when I was looking where it was how it was done .

That bridge we stopped at on the way to that restaurant would be a good tag spot.

Well pardon my ass. Three posts of chatter between old friends? Excuuuuuuuse Me!! I would think anything to draw attention to the thread would be more likely to attract people into the real purpose..to get out and ride. Please accept my humble (cough cough) apologies

New tag.
Staying south, but heading a little west.
Take the Last Train to ___________.

On my phone, so I can't tell if what makes this obvious is showing up properly. Will fix shortly if it's not.

Actually, stopped at the Hardees down the road to eat in hopes of getting *some* kind of signal, but, alas... Should've eaten at the place right behind that. Had to wait to get back to Oxford, NC to post that. Noticed leaving the tag at the dam, that one Schnabba had placed a while back was about 1/4 mile from there... I like the roads around there and that's going to be my preferred destination for a while - lousy cell service or not.

Grab



Snapped the pic and my phone died during upload . No problem I have a spare battery on me , put that in , 5% , go to upload, dead again Which killed my plan to head north a bit and take get my tag .I also was worried since I had a black versys with planners pass me while I was playing with the phone .... I know how those versys guys are about picking up tags .

So I had to go home and charged the phone , ran a mile from the house for this tag .



The sign says Tobacco Heritage Trail Trail head

Good one!
I'd found the website, but it seemed like there might be a good number of those signs. Hadn't narrowed it down enough to make a run for it.

It was going to head over to VIR if I'd had a chance to grab it this morning...

Yep you got it . I Run my sherpa down the unfinished part of the THT since its not officially not in service yet and there are some good atv trails running off of it . Oh link correction http://www.tobaccoheritagetrail.org/ its a nice little hiking / bicycling trail so far just watch for horse exhaust if you decide to stretch your legs on it .
